alot of spear houses line the northern shore by the public access.. if you look out east further those are houses chasing sunnies and crapples on the flats.. I used to have a cabin there a few yrs ago so I know the routine.. lol

Went out there last night, sat from 400 in the afternoon till 1030 at night. Caught maybe 25 crappies, they were all real small. Not big enough to eat all were thrown back to grow. Pretty busy out there though.

Any new news on Suak Lake since the 1st? How thick is the ICE? Fishing report at all? We have a cabin on the lake and are first time Ice-Fishermen. We have the case of beer. And are set to go \:\) Any help would be appreciated.

A member of my family is out almost every day, and there aint much going on, but then again we are fishing for walleyes. I have heard that the crappies are bitting but there is no size to them.

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff

        For this time of year you could use smaller dipseys if you don't have planer boards. Or what I do sometimes is have  longer rods towards the front of the boat and shorter rods towards the back, no dipseys or boards, and just troll that way
